Locating a person detained by ICE

Posted by Inderraj SinghJul 06, 2021

There are numerous ways by which ICE can detain a person such as by collaborating with local law enforcement agencies, employment checks, immigration raids, port of entries or based on criminal detentions.

Having your loved one in ICE custody is nerve wrecking and little information is known when a person is detained by ICE. You can follow these simple steps to locate your loved in ICE custody.
GATHER INFORMATION: you must have the following information available about a person who has been detained by ICE:
  1. Exact Full Name (as it appears on Passport or Identification Card or similar documents);
  2. Date of Birth of person detained;
  3. Alien Number (if any); and
  4. Country of Birth.
Visit ICE LOCATOR ONLINE: once you have the information ready and available, you can visit: https://locator.ice.gov/odls/#/index and search the locator to locate the person detained. There are two ways to search on this online tool: 1) search by Alien Number; or 2) Search by Biographical Information.
In some instances, the person detained might not have an Alien number so you can search by entering Biographical information such as Name, County of Birth, and Date of Birth.
The locator will display the facility and state where the person is detained. Please keep in mind that ICE may take up to 48 hours to update their online database after a person has been detained.
